Joel Samaha's CRIMINAL PROCEDURE, Sixth Edition presents in clear, clean prose the central theme in constitutional democracies-balancing the need for government power to protect public safety with the guarantee of individual liberty and privacy. Samaha's straightforward approach helps students grasp the complexities of the criminal justice system.By focusing on comprehension and not memorization, he helps students understand our criminal procedures and why we need them. This text examines the constitutional requirements of criminal procedure and how these requirements are applied by the courts to law enforcement, prosecution, defense, pre-trial proceedings, adjudication, sentencing, appeal, and habeas corpus.
